Event News

MCM Expo had record breaking weekend with their latest London Comic Con as over 76,000 revellers attended, firmly cementing it as Europe's number 1 comic con.

So how do you follow that? Get bigger of course. How much bigger? I'll leave that to MCM Expo joint MD Bryan Cooney...

"MCM London Comic Con will be soaring from 25,000 m2 to 34,000 m2, spreading the event across both sides of ExCel for the first time... Growing the show's footprint will not only allow us to provide additional exhibitor space, but will also enable us to expand our Main Theatre so even more visitors get to enjoy the latest movies from the UK's biggest distributors, as well as cast and crew presentations."

Paul Miley (also joint MD) had this to say about the con...

"MCM London Comic Con just keeps getting bigger and better... Recent shows have not only seen us host more great films, games, sci-fi shows and comic artists, but also launch exciting new zones such as VidFestUK, dedicated to online video; MCM eSports tournaments and JapanEx, giving visitors a taste of Asian culture; there really is something for everyone!"

MCM London Comic Con returns on 25-27 October 2013. Tickets are available HERE.
